pinned it … cooked it

Today I am excited to introduce my Mom as a new contributor to the blog, pinned it…cooked it. She is a phenomenal chef and filled my childhood with wonderful meals and a voracious interest, and respect for food. I invited her to share some of her cooking adventures with all of you and can’t wait to get started. Welcome to K. Flick Studio Mama, and without further ado, Mom…

The world is a fascinating place and an ironic one. As my daughter will attest, her mother has a “problem”: with cookbooks, recipes torn from magazines, copies of recipes from the Net and now, Pinterest. I think, subconsciously, it stems from my mother. In the last photo of her she is bent over her kitchen table arranging her recipes, I believe as a legacy to me. Subconsciously, these activities may be an attempt to maintain a connection with her. The irony comes on the scene when, trying to delete some of the recipes torn magazines which have been fermenting in a drawer for possibly 2 decades, I finally made a recipe for asparagus, goat cheese and lemon pasta found in the drawer. Excited by the results, I told Kohli how delicious it was. To say I was startled when she said she had made it 2 weeks before is an understatement. The old recipe had been sequested for decades how could she have made it? She found it on Pinterest. I now keep a catalogue of interesting food recipes on Pinterest. Those recipes I have tried and like I pin with suggestions. Now Kohli and I can share recipes easily and the tradition continues.

Fun right? So Mom will be stopping in from time to time and sharing great recipes that she has found on Pinterest, and cooked. She has a collection of images that is definitely worth a gander. Be sure to check her out here. Oh, and try out the recipe, it came together very quickly, and was great for lunch the next day too.

Have a great weekend, what will you be cooking?
